Hi, I have ordered 150k NTL Broadband to be installed next week. I currently use 56k dial-up with NTL as my ISP. I would like to know from those who have upgraded from NTL dial-up to NTL broadband whether I have made the right choice. I know broadband has its benefits, but I have had some problems with NTL as my dial-up ISP I am just worried that the broadband won't be worth the extra money per month. I only decided to go with broadband as they were offering free installation as well as 1 free month. Thanks in advance.

I upgraded to NTL Broadband 2 years ago now on 600k no comparison to dial-up you will never go back now, believe me you have done the right thing, broadband is the way forward.

I did go from dial up (but freeserve) to ntl cable broadband.

Yes they have occasional outages with that - but which isp doesn't?

Best move I made.

What I would say is...

...spend the extra few pennies and have the 600k, it's really worth it! My connection has never been slower that about 620k.

To sum up...

Go for it!

It's well worth trying all options and all providers before making a choise
